June 13.  Our next monthly meeting at the Valley McGivney’s at 6:30 PM. We will plan upcoming climbs and hikes. All are welcome. Come with ideas or to meet other mountaineering folks. this is when we build the calendar.

June 20 evening trip to the Sea Cliffs. I (Carl) am is leading a trip to to the Sea cliffs on Wednesday evening. Understand that due to a messed up shoulder I can’t climb or belay and plan to watch other climbers the sunset.  I am leading this because I can’t climb, run, or play the guitar so I am bored to tears (metaphorically). Also, several folks recently asked how to get there.  Call or if interested 723-9323. We need at least two climbers and I don’t climb these days.

June 22-23 “Solstice ridge hike.”   We are doing a “solstice” hike at night on Juneau Ridge.  It’s being led by Pauline Strong.  The sun will set and rise without getting completely dark, especially on a mountain top. The traverse should take about 8 hours. We plan to start in the evening and by done by about 4 AM.   Contact Pauline by Thursday at 6PM if you are interested.  723-6213.
